Chiring West Attempt. A Japanese expedition, led by Tadashi Kamei, attempted Chiring West (7025 meters, 23,048 feet) by its southwest ridge. They established two high camps, but Camp III was not set up because provisions were swept away from an intermediate depot on July 20. For that reason they made an attempt on the summit on July 28 from Camp II, but they ran out of time and had to quit 100 meters from the summit.
